The concept of “sustainable development” is premised on three interdependent and mutually reinforcing pillars: economic development, social development, and environmental protection. It aims to encourage human societies to meet their needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. In this brief by the Observer Research Foundation, Tanu Goyal and Prateek Kukreja discuss the contribution of the G20 to facilitating implementation of the SDGs by its member countries. It finds that even as the G20 has aligned its priorities and initiatives with the SDGs, the responsibility for achieving these goals lies with the national governments which appear to be falling behind, with India ranking the lowest.
